What to get that (really) young feminist in your life

The gift giving season is here! All the big stores have their catalogs out, the commercials are running non-stop, and Santa's waiting line is longer than the Hannah Montana ticket line. But here you are, burnt out on princess garb, too scared to buy anything from China, and frankly out of ideas for the girl (or boy!) who has everything. Look no further than Veronica's Gift Giving Guide for (Really) Young Feminists:



So there...You now have a boatload of ideas on what to give the empowered girl in your life. Maybe you still want to buy her Princess (fill in the blank), go ahead, who gets one present? But take a look at the list above and compliment that princess with some butt-kicking gear.

I love to give the fairy tale, Princess Bubble to little princesses.This modern day tale has a great message for us all that true "happily ever after" is not about finding a prince. True happines comes from within.

If you have a single friend who is alone this Valentine's Day this would be a really cute gift to them as well.

Thanks for recommending New Moon - we appreciate it!

Thanks for visiting Nancy! And thank you for New Moon. I can't wait til my girl is old enough for it.
